Tal Hurwitz - Sonata For Guitar

Kostas Tosidis, guitar

Not a great recording but a great performance of this sonata which I've listened to about a dozen times and which I love more with every hearing.  It must have about the maximum number of notes per second of any piece for classical guitar I'm aware of.   I wish the composer would record it.   This sonata won the 2008 First Prize in the composer's competition of the Boston Guitar Festival.  It's supposed to have been published as the winner but I'm unable to find the score anywhere.  Not that I'd ever be able to play it, it's real virtuoso music.  I wish there were more of his compositions available.
